    Brad with new kit

    Gardner Custom Drums began in 2012 and was born out of Brad’s passion for vintage drums. Working to build what he loves, Brad combines an early 1960’s design with the heavy, warm sound of the 1970’s. This is achieved in part by using heavy reinforcement rings with a rounded bearing edge to produce that classic vintage sound with a modern twist. GCD specializes in producing this unique look and sound.

    Brad is a lifelong drummer, passionate about music and good coffee. He, his wife Emily, and their son Sam live in North Texas.
